voltage and amperage differences for parallel and series motors

Does placing 2 motors in series allow for higher voltages and less amps?
Does placing 2 motors parallel allow for higher amps at less voltages?
Trying to wrap my head around the idea of series and parallel switching, as mybe 2 or 3 smaller motors could be used as an E-trans.

Thats kinda what I figured, remembering back to school where we did the lights in series and parallel and how it affected brightness and amps and such.
Would this be a worthwhile endeavor? Could I run two 110v motors in series at 220v, or would it just reduce the amps?
